1. the game and the player were built up (on ESPN, immediately put on in the C's locker room postgame)It's weird that people didn't get super-excited about Mikal Bridges' future when he hit 6 of 8 open 3s against Boston last week. And he had even more pointz! 26! Raw numbers!
Zion has a promising future if healthy (although coming back fat is very concerning in that regard.) But his little 4th quarter hot shooting streak yesterday is a complete non-indicator in either direction, and I feel like I'm taking crazy pills with how everyone is slobbering over it.
2. Zion looked lost the first 3 quarters with 5 TOs
3. Zion has played 1 game, how many games has Bridges played in?
If people can't get excited about seeing a 19yr old doing that in his first NBA game then I don't know what to tell you
